Jim Le Fevre, has been commissioned by producer/multi-instrumentalist SBTRKT and record label Young Turks, in collaboration with Red Bull, to create a giant 3-D stroboscope. The SBTRKT-O-SCOPE will be unveiled and showcased at Inner-City Arts’ event Summer on Seventh in Los Angeles on 25th July 2015; it references SBTRKT’s album campaign and is one of only a handful of 3-Dimensional stroboscopes of this scale in existence.
Created by BAFTA winning animator/director, and leading zoetrope artist Jim Le Fevre, the 8ft tall and 6ft wide, stroboscope spins at 33.3rpm and is illuminated by a strobe-rig to create the optical illusion of animation. The architecture and tiers were laser-cut to specific dimensions, and the character animated at Nexus’ London studio then 3-D printed frame by frame into physical models.
